Candice Cove is one of the Historic homes on American Beach Oceanfront. American Beach is a historic HOA beach community located north of Jacksonville, Florida on Amelia Island in Nassau County. During the time of segregation and the Jim Crow era, African Americans were not allowed to swim at most of beaches in Jacksonville, and several black-only areas were created. American Beach was the largest and most popular, and was a community established by Abraham Lincoln Lewis, Florida’s first black millionaire and president of the Afro-American Life Insurance Company.

American Beach was founded in 1935 by Florida’s first black millionaire, Abraham Lincoln Lewis, and his Afro-American Life Insurance Company. The plan was for his employees to have a place to vacation and own homes for their families by the shore. Throughout the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, summers at American Beach were busy with families, churches and children. It was a place where African Americans could enjoy “Recreation and Relaxation Without Humiliation”. The beach included hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs as well as homes and other businesses.

Lovely Cottage! Nicely furnished inside and out. Perfect location. And the back porches (upper and lower) along with the back yard area......... it doesn't get any better! Outdoor seating the shade or in the sun or around the bar....yes bar! There is even an outside TV so all you guys needing your football...LOL And we had the pleasure to meet the owners, absolutely fantastic people. You will not be disappointed.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this house. Very well appointed and clean. We had a minor issue that Anthony was very quick to respond to (repaired in a few hours time). The downstairs bar area and outside patio are exceptionally nice features. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a beach front property.

Very relaxing, beautiful cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage. Very cozy, the rooms were small but immaculate. Courtyard was amazing. Would be great for a large gathering. The only things I would change would be to add a dishwasher and ice maker. Anthony was very nice and accommodating.

Oceanfront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed spending a long weekend at Candice Cove! The cottage is beautifully decorated, the kitchen fully stocked with all of the pots, pans, appliances you may need, the beds are super comfortable, and the outdoor/downstairs area is amazing! We loved sitting outside in the evenings by the fire pit listening to the waves. So glad that we found this cottage - and that we were able to bring our dogs (who also LOVED their walks on the beach)! We cannot wait to come back!

A sweet gem!

A perfect spot away from crowds to enjoy access to a wide open beach for long walks! The house is quite charming, comfortable and most importantly, very clean.

Perfect location for our casual wedding and weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location for our small casual wedding. Even when the rain came through we had enough room for our guests to enjoy the reception. We enjoyed relaxing over the long weekend and seeing the ocean from our back porch.
